Planning Thru Chaos

Wednesday, April 22
3:00 PM - 3:30 PM CST

As we prepare to come out of the COVID-19 crisis, most people do not have a plan for success as we return to our New Norm. The benefits of strategic planning are often overlooked and underutilized when things are running smoothly. But when we experience turbulent times, Planning thru Chaos must become a priority. Every business is like an aircraft - not designed to remain on the airfield of mediocrity, even during challenging times. It was created to soar to new levels of success and you need to focus on your Flight Plan to elevate. 

With the worldwide crisis in full effect, are you looking to elevate your results now? Then reserve your seat. Erik Therwanger, Founder of Think GREAT, will teach you how to enhance your strategic plan, engage your aircrew, and reach new and exciting Flight Levels (goals) through these chaotic and unprecedented times.
